Iron Maiden have released the video for ‘Speed of Light,’ the first single from their upcoming 16th studio album The Book of Souls. The band have noted that the clip pays tribute to 40 years of video games which is comparable the 40 years of psychedelic imagery they have released since forming in 1975.
Rob Scallon is an internet superstar. Anybody who crowdsources the internet for lyrics is a god damn genius. “Metal Mad Libs 5″ is as epic as it sounds. Fashioning the lyrics out of YouTube comments, non-sequiturs like “My bologna has a first name, it’s D.E.A.T.H.” and “poopy poopy in my pants”, and given that most people don’t pay that much attention to metal lyrics anyway, this song could almost pass for normal if you’re not paying attention. Love it!
You’ve got to stop what you’re doing and watch “The Crystal Pepsi Song” by our very good friend L.A. Beast. You can also purchase it on iTunes. Crystal Pepsi fans are going to love this catchy ode to the clear delicious liquid. L.A. Beast will not rest until Pepsi brings it back so the world can enjoy the amazing beverage for the first time since 1992. We salute your determination sir, if you single-handedly get Crystal Pepsi back, I’ll be investing in a bottle or three in celebration.
John Williams’ “Jaws” theme has been given a heavy metal spin, and I can’t believe how good it is. Marvel at YouTube user 331Erock’s astonishing guitar theatrics as he transforms one of filmdom’s most iconic scores into a shockingly effective piece of hard-charging, head-banging goodness. Turn it up.
